There is something about our grandmothers, their methods of storytelling and how it taps into parts of our memory that don’t forget. I personally think it’s something worth investigating for the ‘institutions’ of knowledge. I don’t see why it should this difficult to remember what we were taught at universities two years ago if it comes so natural and easy to remember a story or even a song from our grandmothers, taught decades ago.

Perhaps the decolonization of the current curriculum should begin here, or maybe I’m just missing my grandmother…
